Sprinkle coffee grounds around your vegetables before you water them, you will be activating slowrelease nitrogen that will help them grow faster and fuller. Slugs dont like them either!
Each time you crack an egg open, instead of tossing the shell into the trash, drop it into an open container that you keep in the fridge. When the container is full, crush the shells into small bits and sprinkle them around the base of your plants. The sharp eggshells will deter slugs, snails, and other bugs from nibbling on your garden and add a touch of calcium to the soil. #gardening,
Love this idea for multiple reasons : 1. Equisetum grows so quickly and make even the newest newbie of a gardener feel accomplished and happy, 2. Equisetum can get out of control and this container will prevent that from happening. I am going to plant some Equisetum in pots this summer to create privacy and cover up some unsightly areas of my yard.
Moles be gone Sink a line of glass bottles into the soil with about 1 inch of neck exposed. The whistling sound of wind blowing across the bottle tops disrupts moles’ sensitive hearing and hinders their ability to find prey. Poking several noisy toy windmills into the soil will also disturb moles, as the vibrations will drive them away. Moles dislike garlic,drop crushed cloves into the run. You can also repel them with a castor-oil concoction. Mix 8 tablespoons of castor oil and 1 tablespoon of liquid soap in 1 gallon of water. Dig down into one of the critter’s runs, and pour the mixture inside.
